Training

Altamont Healthcare offers three different certification programs: a Sterile Processing & Distribution Technician Certification ProgramElectrocardiogram Tech Program, and a brand new CPR/BLS Certification program.

Sterile Processing and Distribution (SPD) is the method of cleaning, sterilizing, inspecting, and distributing materials and instruments that are used by a hospital. This includes instruments used in surgeries and invasive procedures, meaning that if the instruments are not properly handled, they have the potential to spread disease and cause infection within a hospital.

Electrocardiogram (EKG) is a test that can diagnose heart conditions and diseases like irregular heartbeats, heart murmurs, or heart disease. The test itself is performed by the EKG Technician and is later analyzed by a cardiologist to provide a clear diagnosis.

Basic Life Support (BLS) and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) are a series of actions that can save a person's life under certain circumstances, like if someone were to have a heart attack or choke. In many cases, the knowing what to do in an emergency is the deciding factor between life and death.
